We're feeling the spring fever around here. Both at PAPAYA! and PAPAYA! Living there's this buzz to comb through everything and just fine tune all the little details. It's a great time for spring cleaning in business so to speak. The ideas are flowing, coffee's on and we're ready to roll up our sleeves and make thoughts a reality. I think it's literally the sudden, and powerful spring here in Southern Oregon that's got us all fired up and focused. Which means artwork and painting are on the back burner for now while we get down to the nitty gritty, nuts-n-bolts of what we do on the business side. We've learned over the years to pay attention to the various waves of energy within PAPAYA. There are intense times where all I can think of is painting, and late nights designing on the computer. It feels literally like a tide, and it creates magical moments in time where so much more can be created. The same is true on the business side. It feels different but it's a tug from the gut that creates a headier, focused energy that requires discussions, collective team efforts and a bubbly mental energy. And that's the current we're riding now. And man has spring fueled that vibe. So for now the paints and the studio will have to wait. I'm craving the making too, but one stream is stronger than the other right now. And once we get through this spring cleaning energy, I get to put my studio back in order and get to it! Pretty damn exciting. How do you handle the various waves between mental developments and creative time? The two are so integral and paramount to success. And I'm always curious how others strike this balance... Happy spring cleaning out there!
